Quoting Jude ♥ JGL:" <blockquote><b>Quoting Blair Waldorf (SuperKink):</b>" Well if her doctor just mentioned ... [snip!] ... And I get it, I do, but that doesn't make my heart break any less when LO asks for her and I tell him that they can't play."
That does suck, but she's doing what she feels best for her child... and it's not something crazy or outlandish, you can't really fault it.
Just try to distract LO...
that's what I do with mine, we had to move and I had to take LO out of his preschool, he still asks about his best friend in the class. I have to just try to distract him. I feel bad, but it's one of those things that's part of childhood that a parent can't always protect their child from.
